Jalapeño Beef Poppers by Certified Angus Beef ® brand Corporate Chef Michael Ollier
Michael Ollier is corporate chef for the Certified Angus Beef ® brand. Founded in 1978 by real Angus cattlemen and made up of a collection of family ranchers, the original Angus brand was created with a shared belief that still drives it today: that its customers can taste the pride that goes into every cut. The Certified Angus Beef ® brand is known for its exceptional quality and generous marbling, and strictly adheres to 10 exacting quality standards that give it incredible juiciness, unparalleled tenderness and exceptional flavor.
Combine ground beef, cheese, jalapeños, salt, pepper, and mustard seeds in a large mixing bowl. Portion by hand into 42 popper-shaped balls, approximately 1-ounce each.
Crack and whisk eggs; put in a shallow dish. Combine bread crumbs and put in a second shallow dish.
Prepare a pot with frying oil; heat to 325 degrees F. Roll poppers in egg mix, 6-8 at a time, roll in breadcrumbs; repeat. Deep fry 4 minutes in batches. Allow to dry on paper towels; serve warm with honey lime crème fraîche for dipping.
